Understanding Ammonia and Why We Don’t Use It at Paradyes

by Harshil Patel on Jun 15, 2024

Ammonia is a well-known ingredient in the realm of hair color, often recognized by its strong, pungent odor. While effective in dyeing hair, ammonia comes with several drawbacks that can impact your health and comfort. Here’s why Paradyes chooses to keep ammonia out of our products.

What is Ammonia?

Ammonia is a chemical compound widely used in permanent hair dyes. Its primary role is to open the hair cuticle, allowing the dye to penetrate deeply and achieve lasting color. Despite its efficacy, the use of ammonia in hair dye formulations raises several health concerns.

The Hazards of Ammonia

Ammonia has a distinct, strong odor that can be quite unpleasant. More importantly, exposure to ammonia fumes can cause irritation to the skin, eyes, throat, and lungs. Common symptoms include watery eyes, itchy scalps, coughing, and a burning sensation in the throat and lungs. These side effects can make the hair coloring process uncomfortable and even harmful, especially for those with sensitive skin or respiratory issues.

Prolonged or repeated exposure to ammonia can exacerbate these symptoms, leading to more severe respiratory and skin problems. Given these potential health risks, it’s crucial to consider safer alternatives when choosing hair color products.

Why Paradyes is Ammonia-Free

At Paradyes, we prioritize your health and comfort by eliminating ammonia from our hair color formulations. Instead of ammonia, we use ethanolamine, a gentler alternative that provides predictable, permanent results without the harsh odor and irritation associated with ammonia.

Ethanolamine effectively opens the hair cuticle, allowing the dye to penetrate deeply and deliver vibrant, long-lasting color. Unlike ammonia, ethanolamine has a much milder scent and is less likely to cause irritation to the skin, eyes, or respiratory system. This ensures a more pleasant and comfortable hair coloring experience for our customers.

Choosing a Safer Alternative

Our commitment to using safer, more effective ingredients means you can enjoy beautiful hair color without compromising your health. Ethanolamine in our formulations ensures you get the same vibrant, permanent results you expect from Paradyes, without the negative side effects of ammonia.

Conclusion

While ammonia is commonly used in hair dyes for its effectiveness, the health risks it poses make it a less desirable choice. At Paradyes, we believe in providing high-quality, ammonia-free hair color solutions that are safe, gentle, and effective. Explore our range of products to find the perfect shade that delivers stunning results with the peace of mind that comes from using safer ingredients.
